1. The Influence Done by Famous Artists By Tempe Woodward
2. M. C. Escher <ul><li>These images done by M.C. Escher show the changes in life and he used perspective to his advantage. He saw things in a different way and influenced young artists to create things that interest yourself and not to change the way you think to fit in with the other artists. There are always going to be things that can be turned into art, but showing individualism makes the art better. </li></ul>
3. My Own Art I did this drawing with a pencil because I was very interested in Eschers work and I wanted to try to do something new that he had not done to make it personal to me. He influenced me to show my own kind of art.
4. Edgar Degas <ul><li>Edgar Degas was born in Paris, </li></ul><ul><li>he was the son of a banker man who wanted him to into business. Degas waited until he was twenty one. He began with painting racetrack scenes, </li></ul><ul><li>ballet scenes, and theatrical. </li></ul>
5. Ingres When Degas was younger he was greatly influenced by the work of Ingres and loved to paint in a classical style until meeting Monet and the impressionists. Degas had a skill as a draghtsman and because of it his paintings had a feeling of immediacy. He discarded calssical rules of compsition and used an oblique angle with light coming from below to create a new type of theatrical space.
6. Sera M. Knight <ul><li>Sera had been painting since she was a child. She paints mostly in watercolor, acrylic, and mixed media. She has loved to paint human figures and loves showing perspective. In the beginning she worked as an architect in the oil industry. When moving for her husband, she started working with galleries. Now she teaches adult education classes, tutors, holds workshops and gives demos in painting and drawing mediums. </li></ul>
7. Claude Monet <ul><li>Claude Monet was born in 1840. In 1845, his family moved to Le Havre in Normandy. His father wanted him to go into the family grocery business, but Monet was determined to be an artist so he pursued his dreams and became very famous for his impressionist paintings. </li></ul>
8. Monet Continued… <ul><li>In these paintings, Monet painted his future wife. These showed how Camille was a huge part of his life. He was inspired by her beauty to use her in various scenes near a lake and on a hill because those were the places that were most familiar to him. </li></ul>
9. In France in the 1870’s, these few artists painted different things that what were considered normal in their time. Even though no one liked their work, they kept on paining what they loved and that is what made their work so powerful. When Monet brought his work to the Juried art show, the Salon de Paris rejected it. Claude Monet Auguste Renoir
10. Alfred Sisley These pictures done by Alfred Sisley shows how he wanted to make ordinary scenes come alive with almost a blurred vision. He thought that by doing this he could show others how even their own back yard can turn into art with the right tools.
11. These pictures, though not done by a famous artist are equally beautiful. Anyone can have a dream, the key is that you should follow as long as you can.
